Follow-Up: My Harrowing Night In The ER & Ambulance Journey

Off topic again…

Yeah! Finally. despite the intense pain from accidentally almost slicing off the tip of my thumb — with the help of Pergoset — I finally slept almost 12 hours!

Actually, by light of day, the incident was funny — well, more like quite picturesque!

Me bleeding all over the place (in sink, on towel, etc.) for 1/2 hour; going in an ambulance to a hospital but paramedics bandaging me first; getting a painful tetanus shot and excrutiatingly painful anesthia shots (which made me scream!); waiting in "Urgent Care"; etc.

Good news, though — which I’ll tell you about by typing ever-so-slowly, with one hand:

  • I cut my left hand (and I’m right-handed). Phew!
  • Missed slicing through my bone (by about 1/16 of an inch)!
  • I got an experienced M.D. with 9 years’ of ER experience
  • Friends, people have been very nice to me
  • Still have one good, functioning hand (thank God)
  • The 5 stitches put my thumb back together
  • I’ll be able to still sort of work (well, tomorrow, slowly, with one hand), when pain subsides

One dramatic moment: By the time I got home, I cleaned the large knife and put it away forever!

Too much pain now… Bummer. My best friends are out of town. Uh-oh. Feeling dopey. Nap time.

Did you blow your diet after the death of a loved one, your divorce or another trying time? Then did your eating get out of control for weeks, months or even years, and you packed on the pounds? I'm here to help you Rebound After Relapse™. Best of all, I totally "get" what it feels like to "lose" your willpower. That's because after my Mom died, I blew my diet bigtime for months, overate carbs and packed on 21 pounds -- this after eating cleanly for more than a decade and even becoming the bestselling author of Sugar Shock (Berkley Books) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House). Stay tuned for my new, "I Blew My Diet! Now What?" Podcast and book."I blew my diet! Now what?"
